  • Ensure software is of high quality
  • Facilitate UAT and collaborate with team members 

To excel in this environment, you would require: 

  • A passion for helping to deliver working software to the businesses, rapidly and of high quality
  • A high concern for order, quality and accuracy
  • Experience writing SQL to query databases, to assist in analysis and testing
  • Analytical skills and ability to see the big picture
  • A willingness to learn about FinTech products and basic terminology and principles of the credit industry
  • Be able to challenge the status quo and bring new ideas to the team


  • ISTQB Certification will be a strong advantage.
